Commencing from Friday 7th September, recreational fishers are encouraged to trade in their old opera house nets (up to 3 per person) for free 'wildlife friendly' open top lift nets, while stocks last.

Participating tackle stores are listed below.

Update Thursday 13 September: Due to unprecedented demand, many stores have fully allocated their nets within a few hours. We recommend recreational fishers call stores to enquire whether they have nets remaining. before taking them in to swap.

Please note, we expect the next shipment of wildlife friendly yabby nets to arrive in mid-late October.
